    April/May Build Dates

    Doesn’t seem to be much, if any, correlation to VIN. Ordered 12/13, build date is week of May 10, with VIN 273xx. No update yet, but I’m concerned about the chip shortage.

    I was talking to my son about having fast charging at rest areas. He’s a Project Engineer, who works in this space of EV charging infrastructure. He was saying, in addition to the lack of power at rest areas for DCFC, most states have laws forbidding the sale of services/products at state owned...

    Any early adopters with buyer remorse?

    It’s very reassuring to read these posts. The majority of you have no regrets, and are affirming my decision to order the MME. I’ve had my concerns, and have been torn whether I should jump ship, and find another EV. Barring further delays from chip shortages, I’m anxiously waiting delivery in...

    Thread for people who haven't gotten their Mach-E's yet to be grumpy in

    I was getting anxious, so I decided to checkout the inventory on I found one in Michigan, just like the one I ordered, except it’s blue, instead of white. I used the VIN to track it, and saw it was in transit. I emailed the Internet Representative to see if it would be available to...

    Need Help with an electrical issue, please.

    Where I live, code requires GFCI to pass inspection. I asked Enel-X about it, before having a JuiceBox 40 installed last year. Here’s the response I received: We understand certain state electrical codes require GFCI breakers so the JuiceBox can operate with these types of breakers. We simply...

    My reservation no longer has a build date

    I received the email on 2/18 saying mine was going to be built the week of May 10th. When I go to to check my order status, it has never shown a bulld date in the Scheduled for Production box.

    March 2021 and Q1 Mach-E U.S. Sales Stats

    I wonder if the chip shortage is the reason for the drop in sales for March? It makes me nervous that cars scheduled for the next few months will be delayed.

    In Ohio, one problem with having DC fast charging at rest areas, is the lack of adequate power at many of these locations. I imagine this is the case for most states.

    First Charge Point, now JuiceBox

    Did you check on the JuiceBox 40 directly on the enelx website? They sent one to me last week.

    9 Months and 1 Day Later....

    Congratulations! Thanks for the nice write-up. With the size of Ricart Ford, it’s crazy, but not unexpected, they didn’t know how to deal with Options. I’m in Central Ohio also, and have an MME on order at Germain Ford. It’s scheduled to be built in mid-May, so I doubt if I’ll see it until...

    I wasn’t able to find data, from the same source, for all vehicles on your list. I couldn’t find any information on the XC40 Recharge. Here’s what I was able to find for 60-0 mph, along with the source: Mustang Mach-E = 109 ft. (Motor Trend) Tesla Model Y = 118 ft. (Motor Trend) Tesla Model...

    Test drive of the Audi E-tron.

    I agree. My MME isn’t due to be built until the week of May 10th. If the chip shortage causes too much of a delay, I’ll probably get an etron.

    Test drive of the Audi E-tron.

    Somehow, it seems Rivian has been able to do it, with a range of 300 miles. Of course, that’s not towing, but a very impressive vehicle anyway. I had one on order, until they decided they weren’t going to lease them.
